1969 cadillac hearse ss (Busch gardens)
Date: 2013-01-01, 5:22PM EST

Call or text 813 516 1312 make offer. open title. has a 472. new carb, new alternator, new fuel pump, interior is super clean, body is solid everything is there.



Guess rear loading door isn't part of seller's 'solid body' equation. Coach would look instantly better w/ landaus flipped correctly. I had previously posed the question asking if S&S always utilized vinyl on Victoria models. Guess not if this one is original.

guess the bars explain the roof. nice coach though. especially for a price of 2500 as that would make it closer to consideration.:)

Ive seen this quite a few times, even once from the factory. If it was a convertible (which landau bars were to mimic in the beginning) the buttons are in the correct position.
At any rate at least they were put on the correct sides.

when I went to put them back on My S&S I looked threw about a dozen pictures and found them about 50/50, still don't know if it's knob up or down

Paul; I was looking at this car, due to it's close proximity, as a restoration project. The seller (a small used car lot near Tampa) talked in circles about the true condition (floors, glass etc). I DID find/locate the last owner and got more input on the car's actual state. As you can see it had quite a bit of rust in the rear door, hidden rockers & a Edelbrock Carb installed after continued prob's in getting it started. At last conversation they were sending it next for a full tune-up. I spoke to "Leo" (the salesman) today and the car did sell, to someone who intended to restore it, supposedly here in FL. Also note: The front bumper appeared bent (R/F)and replacing or getting into new chrome & repair on one of these can crippling (even shipping costs). STILL had tremendous potential being a 3-way.

Can someone explain the term 'open title'? I understand a clear title is in the sellers name. At least here in Ohio. I have heard of Salvage and Rebiuld titles. This is the first time I have heard one called open.

Generally used when the title has been legally signed over by a previous (but not current) owner leaving ownership space blank and current owner never transferred into name. In essence - a title skip.

Subsequently, a closed title is one a previous owner legally signed over to someone other than the current owner's name, usually another owner in the vehicle's history, which is passed along with vehicle as a token of ownership yet inherently remains fairly worthless.

I'm not as much of a fan of hearses, and I wouldn't say 69 would be my first choice in a body style, but I have to say I like the looks of that car!
